Parade Magazine offers a behind-the-scenes look at U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., at home with his family.

As described, the “rising star of the Republican Party” and his wife, Jeannette juggle four children, a commuter marriage, and possible White House dreams.

Here are a few excerpts of the exclusive interview below:

On the idea that he is the GOP’s Great Hispanic Hope:

“I don’t think you can nominate someone with a last name that ends in a vowel and expect that all of a sudden Hispanics will flock to them.”

On his infamous sip of water during his response to the State of the Union address:

“In hindsight, it’s one of the things I laugh about.”

On whether he will run for President in 2016:

“At some point late next year I’ll sit down with my increasingly opinionated children and my wife and we’ll have the conversation: ‘What do I want to do?’”

On his view of the American dream:

“I do believe that the essence of the American dream is a vibrant middle class and upward mobility, the ability not just to do better yourself but to give your kids the chance to do everything you could not do.”
